Frequently Asked Questions About Family Law Issues in South Jersey

FAQ: Will I have to go to court to resolve my family law matter?

The need for court intervention depends upon your unique situation. A family law matter can become so acrimonious that the only solution is to seek court intervention. At Smedley Law Group, P.C., we view litigation as a last resort. We focus on helping our clients resolve conflicts in a more neutral setting, avoiding the trauma and expense of court.

That said, we’re always prepared to advocate on your behalf in court. Family law matters in New Jersey are handled in the Family Division of the Superior Courts. These issues are all heard by Family Division judges.

FAQ: What’s the difference between a contested and an uncontested divorce? Do I need a family law attorney for a divorce?

A contested divorce means that there are family law issues that must be resolved before your divorce is finalized—and your family law attorney can be key to an effective resolution. In an uncontested divorce, the parties have already agreed—or believe that they’ve agreed—to all relevant matters. It’s always best to have a lawyer by your side in either situation. Since we handle these cases regularly, we might see something you have missed in an uncontested divorce.
